33. Energy Metrics for Product Assembly Equipment and Processes
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 8/13/2013
Authors: Shaw C Feng, FNU Kumaraguru, Christopher U Brown, Boonserm Kulvatunyou
Abstract: A key factor deciding the capacity to increase the sustainability of final products is the energy efficiency. The energy embodied in a product is an aggregation of all of the energy embodied in the products' components and subsystems, expended throug ...

34. Environmental impact of manufactured products: A measure inspired by nature
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 7/10/2009
Authors: Prabir Sarkar, Rachuri Rachuri, Hyo Won Suh, Kevin W Lyons, Ram D Sriram
Abstract: Environmental impacts of products are generally determined by using criteria or indicators. There are many criteria or indicators available and during design selecting some of them and assigning weight is difficult. As natural systems are considered ...

Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 12/1/2014
Authors: FNU Kumaraguru, Rachuri Rachuri, David Jacques Antoine Lechevalier
Abstract: Sustainability characterization of manufacturing processes is key to the inventory data development for life cycle analysis of products and processes in manufacturing industries. The ability of an organization to compare and contrast this sustainab ...

36. Feature Information Model for Disassembly
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 8/20/2013
Author: Shaw C Feng
Abstract: As sustainability becomes an important issue nowadays, disassembly becomes one of the key processes to turn out-of-service products into new or rebuilt products to save energy and materials. A disassembly process includes many subprocesses, such as s ...
